Each of the sixteen design projects in IMPACT! has been created by graduates, staff and students from the Design Interactions department at the Royal College of Art, and is based on a research project or research centre supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The research included in the exhibition spans the broad spectrum of engineering and physical sciences. It ranges from renewable energy devices and security technologies to the emerging fields of synthetic biology and quantum computing.

The design projects bring a new perspective to the research. They do not seek to predict the future, or show design applications of science, but offer a creative interpretation of these new scientific ideas.

The results were exhibited at the RCA between the 15-21 March 2010.

The project was commissioned by the EPSRC and partly supported by NESTA.
